Michael Essien believes that Chelsea FC are capable of winning the Champions League under Thomas Tuchel this season.

The Blues have been settling into life under their new manager following his appointment as Frank Lampard’s successor at the end of January.

Chelsea FC took a big step towards reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League on Wednesday night when they secured a 2-0 win over FC Porto in the first leg of their quarter-final clash.

Goals from Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell in either half helped the south west London side to take a large stride towards the last four.
